Ive never owned a Ford but owned 2 Chevys.

I have a hossed out 02 Camaro that counteracts all environmentalists work within a 15 miles radius when I drive the thing.

Havn't had any problems with it but most of the important stuff isnt stock. Only issue Ive had is bending a shift fork and tossing some synchros at the track. Still drove home though.

I can't think of a single Ford I would buy except maybe the Focus if there were a gun to my head. Chevy makes the Vette. Nice performance, but built out of Fisher Price scrap pieces.

Sorry, I just can't tolerate American vehicles. They don't stand up to Euro or Japanese cars.

Only problem we have had was the alternator bearing siezed up and shredded the serpentine belt. 30 minutes and a new belt and alternator and going strong.

I have also owned several chevy`s and have had similar experiences. I like both Ford and Chevy about equally. Ford trucks are heavier, get less gas mileage, but seem to take abuse better. Chevy trucks seems to be lighter, have more power, better fuel economy and ride better. I don`t know about the cars, but I will buy American when it comes to trucks.
my soon to be mother-in-law runs a car dealership in the town next to us. everything i here coming from her mouth every time i show up is "the damn fords wont sell because of reliability." "might as well drive them off a cliff, it would be cheaper than maintaining them."

Also ford had to make a new vehicle, the flex, to bring sales back up. it's hardly doing the deed.
